<br />The use and conservation of palaeontological sites.

<br />ABSTRACT. The conservation of palaeontological sites differs markedly from the popularly held notion of conservation. Rather, it is a form of husbandry whose main validation lies in beneficial exploitation by a wide range of users. The practical separation of site- and specimen-orientated conservation may not be in the best interests of science, so that a more integrated approach to geological conservation is called for.
